Just a little link roundup of some off-site stuff I’ve done recently. As I’m wont to do from time to time.

DevJourney Podcast

#151 Chris Coyier from ceramics to CSS-Tricks and CodePen

Chris took us from playing on his first C64 to his bachelor of arts in ceramics and back to web development. We talked about the different positions he held along the way and how they slowly but surely led him toward web development. We brushed over the creation and recreation of CSS-Tricks, learning in the open and what a good day looks like.

Rocket Surgery: Kaelan and Chris Coyier compare notes

I was asked to remove the audio embed from here, you’ll have to go there to listen to it if you want to.

Are you up to speed on all of this new CSS stuff? Chris Coyier and Kaelan compare notes on CSS and frontend development (they also discuss MDN plus).

CodePen Radio

I’ve been back to hosting the episodes of CodePen Radio this year, every week. Here are some recent episodes.

400: Hiatus CodePen Radio

Marie and I jump on the show to tell y'all we're taking a little break! It feels like years since we've been eluding to the fact that we're working on a new major upgrade to CodePen. Rather than keep dancing around it, we're going to minimize or remove working on anything that isn't working on that. We can't wait to come back for episode 401 and tell you all about it. Time Jumps Sponsor: Split This podcast is powered by Split. The Feature Management & Experimentation Platform that reimagines software delivery.

  1. 400: Hiatus
  2. 399: Data Munging
  3. 398: DevOops
  4. 397: User-Generated Content Saftey
  5. 396: Open Source

I will randomly do the podcast as a video some weeks and call it CodePen Radio on TV! Here’s Adam Kuhn and I doing one of those videos. You’ll see a new intro animation on it that Adam himself did.
